Chris McKay, director of the 2017 animated feature The LEGO Batman Movie, has taken to Twitter to reveal that development is underway on a sequel to The LEGO Movie spinoff.
We are working on that rn actually! In the meantime LEGO Batman is all over LEGO 2 coming in February.

The LEGO Batman Movie grossed $312 million globally upon its release in 2017, so it shouldn’t really come as much of a surprise that Warner Bros. is working on a sequel. And, as McKay states, Will Arnett’s Caped Crusader will be returning to screens this February in The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part.
What this does raise however is further questions about the status of McKay’s planned live-action Nightwing movie. The director has recently signed on to direct a live-action Jonny Quest movie for Warner Bros. and also has Dungeons & Dragons on his slate for Paramount Pictures. Throw The LEGO Batman Movie 2 into the mix and it’s really starting to seem unlikely that the Nightwing film will ever see the light of day, despite McKay’s recent comments that the planned Dick Grayson movie isn’t quite dead just yet.
